Terence Marling, Director HS2
Terence was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and trained at the Ruth Page School of Dance with renowned ballet teacher Larry Long. Following his professional work with Patricia Wilde and Terrence S. Orr at Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, and at Germany’s Nationaltheater Mannheim with director and choreographer Kevin O’Day, Marling became a member of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. During 16 years onstage, he performed works by George Balanchine, Nacho Duato, Johan Inger, Jiří Kylián, Ohad Naharin, Paul Taylor, Glen Tetley and others, originating numerous roles. Beginning in 2010 as Hubbard Street Rehearsal Director, Marling taught, coached and maintained works and premieres by Resident Choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo, Duato, Naharin, Aszure Barton, Mats Ek, William Forsythe, Alonzo King, Susan Marshall, Victor Quijada and Twyla Tharp. Marling’s own creations have been performed by Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre as well as both of Hubbard Street’s ensembles, and he co-choreographed with Robyn Mineko Williams the company’s first family-oriented production, Harold and the Purple Crayon: A Dance Adventure. Marling became Director of Hubbard Street 2 in April 2013.
